Tranquillity (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, - JUL 27, 2012
Draught. Looks like a dark sahti. Almost no head. Aroma of fresh break, grass, liqurice. Taste extremely good, and the finish continues rather than goes into a finish.

16 oz bottle. Pours brown with tall, long-lasting, fluffy off-white head. Aroma is of smoked malt, leather, wood and bacon. Body is medium, creamy and smooth. Taste is of brown sugar, smoked wood, bacon and dark fruit. Finish is long and sweet. Interesting, tasty brew if you like smoked.

ClearHead (15) - FINLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Bottle. Aroma has strong, pleasant tar. Brings back memories of the smoke sauna of my youth. Color beautiful dark amber, clear. Overpowering smoke in taste, feels artificial, chemical, medicinal. Palate is fine but could not finish the bottle. My previous try ended with the same result at a beer expo in Helsinki. So good in other repects. And I am famously ombibolous, after all...A disappointment.

Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma of smoke with malts and ham. Taste goes the same way along with juniper which gives it nice sweetness. Excellent smoke beer

JorisPPattyn (9879) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2016
Medium to good if not very dense, darker cream-coloured head over nearly black beer with a ruby sheen. Rich smoked ham nose, bit of watercolour/gouache, smoked beechwood, beechbark, parsley. Sweet-smoked, with touches of maple syrup, ketjap manis, orangepeel, preserved orange, sweet BBQ sauce, and of course, smoke/phenols. Feels better carbonated than it looks, very oily-oozy, well-bodied. Sweeter than most smoked, but original and rewarding indeed. Kiitos, Teemu!
